Re: How much money do I need in bank account to sponser pare

Hi Vignesh, thanks for the reply, I just thought the ECO might find it a bit presumptuous that your taking out insurance before they've actually given you the visa. I can understand if your putting the quote in, but it didn't seem to harm your case. Yes my in laws are from South India, I will have a...

Re: How much money do I need in bank account to sponser pare

Hi Vignesh,

Regarding the travel insurance, do you mean to take out the travel insurance before receiving the Visa, is that a good idea? Is that what people have done previously?

Thanks
Prem

Re: Visitor Visa for in-laws

Again I can't answer that, a monthly income showing steady credits. The ECO won't like it if there is a large deposit out of the blue, especially close to when your applying.

If your sponsoring them it should be ok.

Re: Parent Visit Visa UK

Maybe start getting your brother to tranfer the money into their account, rather than cash. Or maybe provide evidence that your brother looks after your parents financially.

Re: Parent Visit Visa UK

I don't think there is a fixed amount, just to show there is regular income in that period.
Also I don't think money in Fixed Interest account counts either, as the money cannot be accessed straight away. Its the ties to return back home you must prove also. Hope this helps.

Re: Visa for Parents

Hi Ash I'm no expert, but I too am applying for my in laws to come from India, You can possibly apply at the same time, but you'll be risking it a bit i think. The Visa lasts for 6 months, so if he is staying for only 1/2 weeks then i may be fine, but will be at your own risk. Taken from the goverme...

Re: New Visit Visa Rules UK Help - For Family coming from In

Regarding SiL, I thought so, but some people have told my wife even though there isn't a family visit visa, you can apply together on the standard visit visa. So I was relieved that she might be able to 'piggbank' that way, but now that idea has been corrected. SiL (21) - No Job - Currently doing a ...
